As soon as I walk into Bell Multicultural High School I can hear screaming of cheers and singing along with Miss Chi Chi Monet. I rush to the auditorium to find everyone from the age of 6 to 56 up on their feet dancing and moving to Chi Chi’s new single, ‘Move’. The audience loves the 10 year old rapper who is just too cute and boy does she have a voice! I see another little girl who looks just like her that is running through the aisles dancing and singing along. Later, I find out its Chi Chi’s younger sister Zoe who is clearly just as adorable and talented as Chi Chi.
After their performance they run off stage as everyone is still dancing and cheering for these two young girls who just rocked the show for the last few minutes. Excited to meet them, I eventually catch up to them and ask for a few minutes of their time. I cannot wait to hear their story and what they have to say about their music and inspiration! They even gave us another preview of ‘Move’ again!
A good way to get motivated for a good workout is to buy some fashionable workout attire. I have a few favorite spots for shopping for said attire, but for now I’ll just share one.
I’m turning the spotlight on Lululemon. They specialize in technical athletic apparel for yoga, running, dancing, and most other sweaty pursuits for men and women. Whether you are a yoga head or an avid runner, this store has the gear for you. Here are my stamped favorites for men and women from Lululemon:
Wunder Under Crop Pant – This fancy pant is great because the tight fit makes it easy to check alignment and the calf-length leg allows for extended flexibility during yoga, dance or a Pilates class!
Precise Tee – Mesh – This tee is great for men because it’s engineered with anti-stink Silverescent and mesh fabrics so it will smell fresh post-wash even if you forget it in your gym bag overnight. The fact that it is quite the fashionable find, is icing on the cake!
So, if you haven’t already, stop by a Lululemon store near you or let your fingers do the walking to the online Lululemon Store!
Whether you are a man or a woman, young or old, we all need a little inspiration or an internal boost. We are constantly inundated with how we should look on the outside, often at the expense of our internal beauty. How are you looking? When’s the last time you took a good look at your internal mirror? Well just as often as we take a look in the mirror to make sure everything is intact physically, we should do the same internally. Here are some good questions that can help you get started with your evaluation:
How do I view myself?
How do I view others?
How do I treat the people I love?
Do I take good care of my health?
Am I happy?
It’s a good idea to discuss these questions with someone close to you that you trust. If you find that your inner self could use some tweaking, don’t fret! Knowing is half the battle! Just as we look in the mirror and see a hair out of place and fix it, the same thing can be done with our internal beauty. It can be fixed; you just have to look in that mirror.
So make your internal beauty a priority! Get that friend you trust to help you measure your progress.
You see, it’s nice to look good on the outside, but the most beautiful people are beautiful from the inside out!
Greeting Stampees! You won’t believe what I’ve found while perusing the internet. I actually came across a cleanser that is made for post-workout. Due to the oil build-up and sweat from working out, our skin often overloads and lands us with a ton of acne. Well, this might be the answer to our skin enemy! The name of this cleanser is: Stellar Performance Post Workout Cleanser.
